Leave it to the French to give workaday wellington boots a fashion-forward makeover. Gallic brand Be Only is on a mission to change our perception of rain boots - they’re not just for gardening, you know. When the designs are this charming, you’ll want to wear them everywhere, come rain or shine.
Sometimes, it turns out that your mum was right all along - and that’s definitely the case when protective footwear is concerned. With Be Only shoes, even the fussiest of dressers will probably find it difficult to say no to wearing waterproof shoes. Keep your feet dry in Be Only wellington boots. Opt for a colourful pair to brighten up black jeans and a waterproof jacket, or go bold by wearing your flamboyant printed day dress in the rain, toning it down with black tights and a pair of Be Only wellies in a neutral hue. The brand’s collection for younger wearers will delight little ones, too - look out for lively prints and cheery paintbox hues.
Festival season… it’s a love-hate thing. On one hand, festivals are a brilliant opportunity to dance your troubles away in a field for three days straight (or more, if you dare) but, on the flip side, they can be tricky to pack for. Unpredictable weather and festivals tend to go hand-in-hand, so it can be a minefield working out what to put in your rucksack before you set off. One thing you'll always appreciate is wellies - and if you choose yours from Be Only, you’ll also pick up some style points. Take a chic pair of the brand’s rain boots to wear with your jazziest festival look. Pull a windbreaker and a bum bag over the top, and you’ll be ready to rock in the inevitable downpours.
